Shishapangma "Exquisite apparition" is located in the central Himalaya and lies totally within Tibet. To the east lie Mount Molamenchen to the west Mount Xifeng and Mount Nandengri with Mount Kangbochen rising up to the northwest.
Shishapangma,"the range above grassy plain," was first climbed by the Chinese in 1964. There are three climbing routes on the south face with several other logical possibilities on the west Ridge and east face. The normal west route takes us up easy angled snow slopes up to 35 degrees with one steeper section. This section will be fixed and placed on the steeper on crevassed sections.
